The reason it was a draw was partly our fault and partly because they played really well. We know they're an excellent side and they didn't steal anything. My form has always been this good and has been for the last 15 years. I did have some problems which didn't allow me to train like a normal professional which meant that I suffered for four or five months. I received a mountain of criticism at the time but the more criticism you get the greater the joy.
